If you’re like most Americans you’ve been spending a lot more time at home during the last two years due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Chances are your work and home space may have merged. That alone can be anxiety-inducing. And with some calling this the end of in-office working as we know it—it may be about time to upgrade your home decor for your mental health.
You may be surprised about how much your surroundings effect things like mood, productivity and overall mental health. For instance, one 2016 NIH study found that even choosing bright colors for walls can help with concentration. Harvard Medical School also advises that having an organized and decluttered home space can help with stress relief.
Home design isn’t just about furniture preferences, — decor has an effect on happiness, state of mind, and even your temperature in a given room. Moreover, Chloe Taylor—a journalist for Psychology Tomorrow magazine, says “Although the bond between interior design and our emotions has gained much attention in the last decade, this form of environmental psychology [existed] for thousands of years now – the Indian Vastu Shastra, the Chinese Feng Shui, etc……scientists are finding the most incredible results. They have shown the ability of interior design elements to evoke a positive or negative emotional response in people. These findings open the door to design spaces that consciously manipulate decorative elements with the goal of encouraging creativity, peace, and happiness.”
